These medium fast and progressive action rods are smooth casting and powerful, yet very forgivingand are an incredible value. Lefty says they are the perfect rods for all anglers and skill levels. Traveling anglers can afford to take them as a backup, but often return with a new favorite. Cosmetics include matte black finished blanks and subtle gold logos. They feature alignment dots color coded by line weight, premium grade cork with burled accents, and oversized stripper guides. New anodized reel seats with braided carbon fiber inserts make these rods as forgiving on the eyes as they are in the hand. Each rod comes with an attractive logoed rod sock so you can add our optional tube or customized your own.
